Vernissage: Patrick Essex | bichrom

Cologne photographer Patrick Essex has created the series "bichrom" especially for Stadtgarten Köln, which presents musicians in two-tone images.

The seven musicians pictured are former and current participants of NICA artist development. Launched in 2019, the funding program for outstanding musicians from NRW is organized by the European Center for Jazz and Contemporary Music Stadtgarten Cologne and funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Using light, foils and various glass filters, Essex created a visual framework in his photo studio, which Fabian Dudek, Marlies Debacker, Theresia Philipp, Rebekka Salomea Ziegler, Leif Berger, Elisabeth Coudoux and Pablo Gīw freely interpreted with or without instruments in motion. Stylist Sabine Berlipp was responsible for the unusually colorful outfits of the musicians.

Patrick Essex's flair for light and color has produced a series of photographs that accentuate the artistic individuality of those pictured and arouse curiosity for music through the stillness of the image.

The exhibition opening will take place in the presence of the photographer.
